The Bi-State Literacy Council has had to cancel our Recognition Breakfast for 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We hope to resume celebrating literacy volunteers and agencies in 2022.
The Bi-State Literacy Council’s last breakfast was held on October 24, 2019, at 8:30 a.m. at Oakwood Country Club in Coal Valley. The event featured speaker Michael Carton, Director of Education at WQPT, as well as presentations of literacy awards to area individuals and organizations, and scholarships to adult students pursuing secondary education. Thank you to our Breakfast sponsor, Exelon Generation!
The Bi-State Literacy Council provides awards each year to outstanding literacy volunteers and supporting agencies from throughout the six counties we serve. In addition to those awards for outstanding service, one volunteer or professional is chosen for his or her exemplary service to be awarded the Sr. Camille Clark Exemplary Service Award. The Council also provides a check for $100.00 to the literacy-related program chosen by the Sister Camille Clark Exemplary Service award recipient.
Any proceeds from the breakfast are used to fund fall grants to area literacy providers.
